THE CÔTE D’AZUR IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA

We selected the news of the coast for the season to begin at the Azur blue coastline in the South of France. So diverse and so close to explore a new spot every day. Have a nice trip

Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat / Four Seasons Hotel

By far one of the most luxurious places to stay at the Côte d’Azur. After its total renovation the Four Seasons Hotel took over and matched the palatial chic with the best service in the world.

Spend your day at the Beach Club Dauphin, built in 1939 and celebrated as one of the world’s most beautiful swimming pools in the old Olympic size (33m) and if you are lucky you get a training lesson by the legend Pierre Gruneberg, 88. Among his students are the children of Charlie Chaplin, Gérard Depardieu, W. Somerset Maugham, Jean-Paul Belmondo, the Kennedys, Paul McCartney and Ralph Lauren. Pierre is now teaching the grandchildren of the children whom he originally taught.

EPI1959 Hotel, St. Tropez

EPI1959 is a super small but exclusive hotel. With only 10 rooms and a private residence, it almost feels like one is being handed the keys to a friend’s villa. The cabanas are intimate, even imperfect, but reflect a 1960s elegance.

Perfectly located at the most beautiful beach of the Pampelonne.

Hotel Roches Rouges, Saint Raphael

A Fifties Modernist design icon with unique location directly at the sea. The large natural seawater pool has an amazing design and there is an overall feeling of tranquility and relaxed coolness at this place. Enjoy some new wall-paintings by artist Rosie McGuiness, Celia Carlstedt and Caroline Popham.

Its restaurants serve the best interpretation of the famous Provencal cuisine. In 2019, La Terrasse restaurant has been honored with its first Michelin star this year.

l’Ondine Plage, Cannes

Rebirth of a classic. Still the best cuisine of all the Cannes beach restaurants and now in a completely new design. All the Beach restaurants in Cannes had to be rebuilt in a new and sustainable architecture. The city of Cannes set a high standard and L’Ondine Plage definitely overachieved.

3.14 Plage, La Croisette, Cannes

This newly designed plage by the architect Olivier Sabran and the interior designer Alexandra Ellena create a new idea of the miseducating on scene when thinking about a beach club. The beachside is composed with the garden furniture by Paola Lenti in her signature style combining perfectly the concept of the 3.14 plage where you can enjoy a yogapéro Sunday morning which combines a heathy juice with a yoga session at the beach and only organic ingredients used for the menu and patisserie.
